National final season is well and truly heating up. One country which has reverted back to a national final in 2020 is Armenia. Depi Evratesil 2020 is the third edition of the show which was first introduced in 2017. Twelve acts are competing to represent their country in Rotterdam but in the end, only one will get the ticket. We want to know who you think it should be.
Depi Evratesil 2020 will take place on Saturday 15 February. In 2017, the contest was held as a search for an artist only. That contest unearthed Artsvik who soared in Kyiv. Then, the 2018 edition took place, searching for both a singer and song for Eurovision. Sevak Khanagyan proved victorious with “Qami” but failed to make it out of a tough semi-final in Lisbon. In 2019, Armenia opted to put Depi Evratesil on hold and internally selected Srbuk for Tel Aviv. The “Walking Out” singer unfortunately also walked out of the semi-final.
This year, the twelve hopefuls looking to represent Armenia at Eurovision include La Voix runner-up Miriam Baghdassarian — that’s the French-Canadian Voice franchise. She is joined by former Greek Junior Eurovision hopeful Athena Manoukian and Armenian Junior Eurovision winner Vladimir Arzumanyan. Also competing is TOKIONINE, who co-wrote last year’s Armenian entry “Walking Out”.
There are some big names in the lineup but only one can fly the Armenian flag in Rotterdam. You can listen to the playlist of entries below and then cast your votes for your favourites. As usual, you can vote for as many of the songs as you like but you can only vote once, so choose wisely.
